Update on Borrowing Equipment

For Guild Members


Weaving and spinning equipment can be rented on Wednesday through Saturday, at a guild meeting or on completion of a course. On Wednesday through Saturday, a member of the weaving and spinning or ACP executive is at the ACP from 10 to 1 to coordinate equipment rental. Whenever a piece is rented, the rental form must be filled out and placed in the green binder in the Active Loans section. On an exception basis, equipment can be loaned at another time by contacting the weaving equipment manager to arrange a time when she can come to the ACP.


When a return is made, payment is required. The executive member present at the ACP will accept the return and associated payment, on Wednesday through Saturday in the 10 to 1 timeframe. At this point, the loan form is completed to confirm the return date and payment. The weaving equipment manager is advised of the return. Returns can also be made at a guild meeting. The weaving equipment manager will pass by later to confirm the condition of the equipment and ensure that it is replaced in the proper spot in the studio. Filling out and completing the rental form on rental and return with returned date and payment indication remains essential to make this work. 

The weaving equipment manager will continue to monitor the weaving equipment inventory. This equipment inventory review should be completed annually but it is proposed that a 6 month review be completed at this point given the ‘missing pieces’. The weaving equipment manager will continue to update both weaving and spinning equipment lists as new pieces arrive.
